WA (92-95) AG (91-93) - The 2013 Optimus is the estate’s entry level blend, yet it always drinks well above its price point and is a perfect example of the style of the estate. Decadent black and blue fruits, graphite and smoky nuances all show here, and it has full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and terrific length.

WA (92-95) AG (91-93) Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2013 Optimus is the estate’s entry level blend, yet it always drinks well above its price point and is a perfect example of the style of the estate. Decadent black and blue fruits, graphite and smoky nuances all show here, and it has full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and terrific length. It should be another superb vintage for this cuvee, and it should shine on release and evolve for upward of a decade.

According to Antonio Galloni - Blackberry jam, cloves, cassis, new leather and spices burst from the glass in the 2013 Optimus. Today, the tannins are a bit firm, but that should not be much of an issue in another year. The 2013 is dark, juicy and explosive to the core. Optimus is a Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon/Petit Verdot blend. 48% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Petit Verdot. 15.7% ABV.
